Come down to the Estuarium this month for Fish February!
Hidden in the river hanging from the ceiling of the Puget Sound Estuarium you can find an installation of fifteen ceramic salmon. The installation presents five salmon species of the Pacific Northwest: Chinook, Chum, Coho, Pinky, and Sockeye. Each species contains three salmon at different stages of their life cycle: one ocean stage and female and male upriver stages. The artist, Maddie Bell, is a current Evergreen student interested in the use of art as an entryway into scientific exploration. Included in the show is a summary of the environmental research that informed the project. The show will be up until the end of February.
We are also lucky this month to have the South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group (SPSSEG)’s Stream Table on loan. Come down and make your own stream by moving around barriers, sand, logs, and vegetation. This interactive activity teaches kids and adults alike about bank erosion and the obstacles salmon deal with swimming upstream.
